Genesis 15:16-18

16 But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”17 And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces. 18 On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates—”

Good evening and welcome to the Sunday Night Edition of “We are the People” Prayer for America.  Every Sunday we bring together the hearts of intercessors that choose to invest a minimum of 15 minutes in prayers of agreement between the hours of 6:00p.m. and 9:00p.m. using the three focus points listed below as a guide.  May God bless you for your concern for America’s future expressed in prayer tonight.  We encourage you to join us in prayer daily and invite others to join us.

In verse 16 we are told that the evil done in Canaan would one day become so bad that judgement would come to them. At the time God’s people would take possession of the land.

God sealed those words in a covenant and we know through the Word of God that what God said came to pass.

Prayer Focus Point #1: In other verses, we are told that “the cup of iniquity would become full,” then judgement would come. Pray that God’s people in America will recognize when the cup is full and prepare their hearts for God’s “next” for His people.

Prayer Focus Point #2: God made a covenant with Abraham. He gave us His word that when evil abounds, grace will much more abound. Pray that as the people of God, Christians will open their hearts to receive God’s amazing grace that will enable us to not be overcome by the evil but overcome the evil with good.

Prayer Focus Point #3: In verse 18 God told Abraham that He would give his descendants land between the two great rivers. America has land from sea to shining sea. Pray that God’s people will understand the magnitude the inheritance we have in Christ and bring His blessing all across the land.
